You take it for granted nowadays that when a comic title reaches a certain milestone issue number (25, 50, 75, 100, etc.) that there will be some kind of special story or event to celebrate. This was not always the case in the earlier days of comics publishing, but for the 150th issue of Superman, they did print a special story of sorts. This story reveals the origins of the three main characters (at the time) of the series via flashbacks related to the main story.
Also of note here are the brief cameos of the Bizarros of Bizarro World, who were becoming quite popular during this period.
By Jerry Siegel and Al Plastino.
